Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Processing: Methods and Applications demonstrates the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in our lives. The book is a collection of 14 edited reviews that cover a wide range of topics showcasing the application of AI and machine learning to create knowledge, and facilitate different processes.

The book starts by illuminating how AI is employed in robotics, IoT, marketing, and operations. It showcases how AI extracts insights from big data, optimizes museum management, and empowers automated garden path planning using reinforcement learning. The book also explores how AI can be used to predict heart disease using artificial neural networks. Furthermore, the book underscores how AI predicts crop suitability, manages crop systems, and can even help to detect violence in using computer vision. Chapters highlight specific techniques or systems such as recommendation systems and reinforcement learning where appropriate.

Key Features:

  • - Showcases a wide range of AI applications.
  • - Bridges theory and practice with real-word insights.
  • - Uses accessible language to explain complex AI concepts.
  • - Includes references for advanced readers.

This book is intended as a guide for a broad range of readers who want to learn about AI applications and the profound influence it has on our lives.


General readers, students, researchers and entrepreneurs interested in AI use-cases and applications.


Artificial Intelligence has been gradually invading our lives, and we are using it to accomplish many fundamental tasks. Talking to Siri or Alexa, and avoiding traffic using Google Maps are the most common examples of Artificial Intelligence in our daily lives.

Intelligence, as a quality possessed by humans, is the ability to acquire and apply knowledge. This knowledge is gained through observation, perception, application of reasoning and logic to the observed facts. Artificial intelligence transforms how knowledge is captured, developed, shared, and efficiently used within organisations.

Many tools are used in AI, including mathematical optimization, logic, and probability and dwell in the fields of computer science, psychology, linguistics and many other subjects.

The major application of AI in Robotics, IoT, Marketing and Operations, how insights are extracted from bigdata, Museums including Lighting and Cooling Systems, forecast visitor behavior, management of security systems and economic use of energy and other resources, automated path planning in a garden environment using reinforcement learning and analysis of human gait by utilizing regression are discussed in this book. This book also gives insights into violence detection using computer vision for smart cities.

AI is also increasingly used in the health sector. For example, Artificial Neural Network is used to predict the presence or absence of heart disease. Scientists have used AI to predict crop suitability and rainfall prediction, referred to as a Crop Management system. Crop Management System uses parameters like the ratio of nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, pH value of soil, and environmental factors such as humidity, rainfall, temperature, etc. These issues are also discussed in this book.

This book written in simple language throws light on the AI applications in several fields, including machine learning, medicine, and agriculture and briefs how AI impacts daily life. We hope that this book will be beneficial for students, researchers and all people who are interested in Artificial Intelligence and Knowledge Processing. We express our sincere thanks to the editorial and production teams who worked relentlessly to publish this book on time.
